DFG To Set Up 14 New Collaborative Research Centres
...re actuator systems with integrated sensors, power electronics
and control systems which areembedded in a mechanical carrier structure. The usefulness of the newly developed methodswill then be demonstrated in a prototype model. The objective - which is also of great interestto industry - is to develop a systema...
U-M Engineers Win Army Grant To Build Artificial Eye
...e Michigan engineers have already done much of the electronics
groundworkfor the project, Bhattacharya said there are still several technical problems tosolve. These include making variable focal length lenses that, like the eye,can adjust to every depth of field. In addition, the device will have to have asuf...

to create the world's first bionic photosynthetic energy system. Future applications of their technology could lead to multiple technological advancements and could help steer the economy of Maricopa County. ASU chemists Ana Moore, Devens Gust and ...
DNA Used To Create Self Assembling Conducting Wire: Breakthrough Will Lead To Next Leap In Emerging Nanoelectronics
...s an important step toward the nextquantum leap in electronics
miniaturization. Making that leap is the ultimategoal of researchers in the emerging field of nanoelectronics. The nanocircuits of the future will consist of wires, transistors andother components with dimensions measured in billionths of a ...
Good Ergonomics Is Good Economics
...mbly workstations. Typical workstations at a major electronics
assembly plant result in poor postures and resultant work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Valery Venda of the University of Manitoba has designed a new type of fine assembly workstation that utilizes a TV camera and monitor. Not only does the TV c...
A Drug Pump On A Computer Chip
...mechanical system, in which sensors, actuators and electronics
are merged onto a single silicon wafer. The next step will be to shrink the device so it can be mass produced like a computer chip. The research, in the laboratory of Whitaker Investigator Michael Huff at Case Western Reserve University, is driv...
